Growing in sewing

Arielle from France goes to Japan

1 Comment

This is another post that should have been made this fall, better late than never?

First off I’d like to admit that I have yet to wear this outfit besides for these photos so I can’t say it’s a wearable combo in my life. With that being said, I still kind of like it as an outfit.
The blouse is the Arielle Blouse from Deer & Doe. I can’t remember now but I must have shortened the sleeves, probably because I can’t stand wearing 3/4 sleeves (I do like rolled up long sleeves though, weird). The fabric is some kind of mystery fabric that I can’t remember buying, it was probably on sale somewhere. It most definitely contains a lot of polyester though since it melted when I ironed it. I am classifying this as a toile since it helped me determine that I really like this pattern, I will most likely make this up again in another fabric. I have a couple nice voiles that could be awesome.

This makes me wonder since I have never heard anyone speak the words toile or voile, do they rhyme?
The pants are made by this Stoff & Stil pattern again. The fabric is a lovely thick Japanese fabric that I love. Unfortunately I think I got the last piece, but it’s a darker version of this or this, this is also similar but with a smaller pattern. The thing about these Japanese fabrics is that they are just as cool on the wrong side as the right. You can see this on the inside of my waistband.
IMG_9268The pocket fabric is also a Japanese fabric, but it’s a thinner quilting cotton weight. Apparently I forgot to take a picture of the right side, oops.IMG_9266IMG_9264These are classified in my closet as special occasion pants as the fabric lacks good recovery, so it’s a wash after wear kind of thing. They are pretty fun to look at though 🙂

I love to be creative, especially to sew, finding new patterns and fabrics is always rewarding and fun. I've grown up with the craft, my mother is a quilt-shop owner and her love for sewing has rubbed off on me.

  1. Lovely as usual:) I can understand that you have problem with the recovery of the pants since they are 100 % losely woven cotton. But they look absolutely wonderful. The fabric is wonderful in a quilt or a bag also.
